Mac OS X Well, this is a surprise. Several websites have a preview up of Apple's next Mac OS X release - it's called Mountain Lion, and continues the trend of bringing over functionality from iOS to Mac OS X. Lots of cool stuff in here we've all seen before on iPhones and iPads, including one very, very controversial feature: Gatekeeper. Starting with Mac OS X 10.8, Apple's desktop operating system will be restricted to Mac App Store and Apple-signed applications by default (with an opt-out switch), following in Windows 8's footsteps.

Heh... must suck to have actually bought recent Mac hardware. I'm glad I was broke and had so many other things that I was interested in spending my money on, because I was really considering a Mac (if only to play around with the OS) for a while. At the time I was interested, if I were to have bought one, it wouldn't have taken much time at all that Apple was building one hell of a brick wall against their users' freedom of installing software on their own machines, and given Apple's already-overpriced generic hardware, I could imagine how pissed off I would be now after reading about this.

Luckily, Apple's always-high prices persuaded me against buying a Mac. So, thank you Apple--I appreciate it!
